A Snaapy Post


Today’s Music: VeggieTales: The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything Silly Song (NOTE: This is probably the Only. Time. Ever. I will post one of these songs. It was ridiculously painful)

As the world spun earlier today, and time crept forward across the planet, something happened. Something Magical.
The date changed.
And it became 30 April. The world became engulfed in the unstoppable march of this date, and the world reveled in it.
Why?
What’s so important about 30 April?

It’s Ginger Snaap‘s birthday!!!!
Get out your sunglasses, because shininess reigns for a solid 24 hours!

He's celebrating.

Actually, shininess always reigns where Ginger is. Whether trash talking with the soccer moms, or pointing out the errors of his ways to Mountain Man, Ginger is just a bundle of joy.

Ginger unwrapped her present early.

Who can resist her wit? Her kindness towards crazy people? (She’s their leader!) And her weekday twitter dance parties?
Truly the stuff of legend, much like the woman herself!
So join in the celebration!
Let yourself go!
And if people are blinded at your joy today, well, that’s just Ginger Snaap’s shininess reflecting off us all!

Yeah, too bright even for him.

Or maybe they’re blinded by the awesome dance moves.

Doin' the happy birthday dance!

Happy Birthday Ginger Snaap!

      And I can’t encourage you enough to go experience the peculiar and wonderful brand of crazy that is Ginger Snaap. (the twitter dance party is just starting – you can get in on the ground floor. No telling where the hell she’s gonna take it! Maybe even some Barry Manilow!)

  5. I was optimistic about today because I started with a nice run at a healthy pace and I have a full agenda of productive things to take care of…some of which I’ve already gotten to.

    But to see that picture of Pete. And then that picture of Tom. Argh. What the hell was in your coffee this morning?

    As for your choice of song, those Veggie Tales are a great thing. The shows are funny and clever and they convey sophisticated messages that kids can absorb. Besides, this was the first movie my son saw in a theatre. After 85 minutes and a 32 oz. cup of soda, he never ran so quickly to the bathroom. He made it too. .

    Happy Birthday, Ginger Snaap.

        • Of course I didn’t make her listen to it. I love her too much to make her have to divorce me.
          She did ask me what was wrong while I was cursing at the video, but I just waved her off.

          • you really need to dig a little deeper than the Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything to appreciate the true awesomeness of the VeggieTales. Larry is a Cucumber of God.. πŸ™„ I think to introduce people to them properly you must start with… His Cheeseburger.. or The Yodeling Vetrinarian. I Love my Lips is always a crowd pleaser. and you can never ever go wrong with Song of the Cebu..

  12. Two things:

    (1) Happy Birthday, Ginger Snaap!
    AND
    (2) Why, oh why, am I experiencing major deja vu on the Rose & Reynolds pictures? I’m completely certain we used them for a Twitter joke or something at some point. Do you remember?

    Also … ODNT Fun Fact … that series of Burt pics was the first time I ever saw anybody’s … “Shamus.”

    What? I COULD have said “Longest Yard!”

  20. Haha, somehow that song migrated onto my iPod from my daughter’s and it occassionally pop up in my shuffle. Funny the first time, annoying every time after that. I think it’s actually by a group called Relient K. They had another equally annoying song called “Sadie Hawkins Dance” which also occasionally interupts my gym visits.
